Every time I see this post with the tags I think about it for a really long time
All light is sacred to the Eldar. Woodland elves love best the light of the stars.
I have walked there sometimes, beyond the forest and into the night.
I have seen the world fall away and the white light of forever fill the air.
Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman 2/2
I think Martin means
All the women just switched on.

KEEP THOSE JEANS ALIVE
Everybody knows the pain of shopping for a decent pair of jeans, and the even greater pain of losing a really good pair to a hole in the crotch. Sewing torn denim back together is not a thing that nature intended, because the world is a dark, cruel place.
But I wasn’t gonna stand for that! I’m playing God, I thought. I’m fixing these jeans, and the laws of nature can go fuck themselves. And then it worked. Here’s how to do it:
- Buy some Shoe Goo from your local CVS or something. It’s pretty cheap and you can glue basically anything with it. I glue the soles of my shoes back on with this stuff.
- Sacrifice some mistake jeans to make a patch, and glue that patch to the inside of your jeans. Glue it down real good. Do this in a well-ventilated area because Shoe Goo is toxic stuff until it dries.
- Let it cure for 24 hours, and then put your jeans back on and flip God the bird, because you have just performed a miracle. You have saved your favorite jeans from certain garbage-canning.
One tube of glue is enough to save a lot of jeans, plus some shoes on the side. The patch holds up pretty well in the washer/dryer, and is only a little stiffer than two layers of denim would be anyway. Boom.
i threw out a pair of jeans that had worn through right on the butt and to this day i’m still sad
- DAMN INTELLIGENT
- VALUABLE AS HELL AND NOT THE LEAST BIT WORTHLESS
- SUPER FUCKING LOVED
- EXTREMELY GOD DAMN INTERESTING
